San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has a thing for betting on his local teams.

And this weekend when the Cal Golden Bears become a San Francisco team for a day, Lee will have Dungeness crab, Anchor Steam beer Ghirardelli chocolates and Philz coffee on the line.

Lee has placed a bet with Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin that his Cal Bears, who will play at Candlestick, will beat the Fresno State Bulldogs.

San Francisco's leader has fared well in recent bets. Last month Lee got to indulge in Blue Bottle Coffee, Vice Chocolates and Oakland-based wine courtesy of Oakland Mayor Jean Quan.

The two bet on the preseason match up between the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers.

If the Bears win Saturday's game, he will get to enjoy wine, olive oil, nuts, fruits and vegetables from Fresno
